My name is Thea Eaton and I just joined the mailing list. We are an
interactive learning company in Houston, Texas, and we provide services to
educational publishers as well as produce our own children's software. We
make interactive educational materials such as Flash games and websites,
accessible for screen reader users, or for children who do not use screen
readers yet.

We are looking for parents of visually impaired children who would be
willing to help us, by sharing with us some of your child's computer
experiences. This survey has several questions that we have on children's
computer use, when your child started to use screen readers or other
assistive technologies, and other questions on computer access. Among other
things, we are worried that educational content for preschool children who
might not use screen readers yet, might not be fully accessible when only
programmed for screen reader access, for example, and not have audio
rollovers on buttons. The results of this survey will help us make the right
implementations for different age groups. Are there any parents out there,
with children of the ages 3-18 that use the computer, with or without an
assistive technology, that would be willing to help us?

Thank you for your time,
Thea Eaton
